ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Santa Fe is known for its art galleries, entertainment and markets. The capital city Rail Runner Depot station will transform into Santa’s winter wonderland Saturday.


“It’s going to look like literally a section of the North Pole has come to Santa Fe,” Augusta Meyers, Communications Managers for the Rail Runner Express said.  

For the 6th year in a year, the Santa Fe Depot and Railyard is undergoing a makeover for one of the city's premier holiday events. 

“There’s all kinds of fun things to do,” Meyers said. 

The sights and sounds of the holidays will surround people as they walk down the streets and sip on cups of hot cocoa.

“Well, of course, Santa Claus is going to be there, so if you'd like to take a photo with him, we encourage you take your phones or your cameras, and get a picture with the big guy himself,” Meyers said. 

Kids can hop on the “Moose Caboose,” a mini train, or catch a classic holiday movie, a showing of “Elf,” at the Victoria Crown Cinema. 

“And then also we’ve got face painting, ornament decorating, and cookie decorating,” Meyers said. 

The Rail Runner Express will be running, and more trains will be on the tracks to accommodate guests. 

“If people want to bring an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots, the first 100 people who do that will get a free train pass,” Meyers said. 

Folks can visit Santa's Village Saturday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. All activities take place outside the Santa Fe Railyard and inside the Violet Crown Cinema and are free except the train fare and the cost of the movie.
